Islander Resort Hotel - Surfers Paradise

Would not recommend Sat, May 8, 2010
The Islander is in a GREAT location! The 745 bus line runs from Nerang Railway Station (your stop if coming from Brisbane) and ends at Beach Rd, which is just outside the hotel. The ocean was visible from our balcony (quick walk to catch the sunrise!!!) and one street down is Cavill Ave where the typical surfer shops and the picturesque (and signed) entrance to Surfers Paradise beach are. The hotel reception was friendly and helpful, but the fact that the Islander is half hotel resort (with pool, spa, sauna, tennis court) and half backpacker lodging DOES NOT work in the advantage of the hotel half. The carpet in the room needed major repairs, the TV needed to be activated on the power-box thing near the bed, the shower tiles were naturally a green-brown color which made me unsure if it was just the tile or fungi growing in the shower - so I wore sandals and showered dormitory-style, and to top it all off, the mini-fridge smelled like someone had stored raw fish in it at one point and the room smelled super stank if the door was opened. The location is the only real redeeming factor. For an additional $10-15, I'd rather stay at the Courtyard by Marriott situated across the street. As a nice treat, though, since a bar is adjoined to it, there was a coupon for a free pot of beer. Yummy - Pure Blonde!
